Plainfield nature photographer's exhibit opens at Library Monday

When I was introduced to Plainfield nature photographer Carl Monopoli's work nearly a year ago (see my post here), I immediately put him in touch with the staff of the Plainfield Public Library, thinking his work would make a fabulous exhibit.

Now it has come to pass -- the exhibit opens in the Library's Anne Louise Davis Gallery on Monday, August 14 and runs through October.

Carl lives on one of Plainfield's secluded streets that dead-ends into a woodsy glade forming a boundary with a neighboring town. It also thrives with wildlife, forming the subject matter of Carl's exhibit.

From foxes to snakes, from birds to
insects, Carl patiently captures them all.

These stunning photographs have been blown up to exhibit size and will be on display for the next several weeks during the Library's regular hours.

The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots. For more information about library hours and programs, visit the library's website at
